Exit interviews

For the past couple of years taking a Masters class in journalism, I have conducted exit interviews as they ready themselves to fly from the nest - ok analogy I suppose.

Sometimes I have asked odd questions.

Who would you invite for dinner and why?

What one thing would you like to change in the world?

Sometimes you might even get asked these at interviews as I have in the past.

So coming up a dive into the recent archives and class of 07 -the fantastic new generation of journalists, doing everything and anything we, you might have wanted or still want to do.

In the excerpts coming up on viewmagazine, they're talking about the year: short burst clips summing up what they've done, their fears ( should they have any) and the road ahead.

Amongst the group is the 24 year old zeigeist journalist now at the BBC as their Gaza Correspondent, Tamer.

And others who are commanding respect and attention in their endeavours.

Makes for fascinating listening
